Democratic County Chairman Richard Abbate said: “We put together a team that had a clear vision and plan on how to move this county forward. ... We knew we had an uphill battle with a Republican Party that has dominated this county for as long as anyone could remember. ... I thank the residents for listening to our candidates concerns and ideas. I congratulate Vince Casale, and Republicans on their win tonight. I urge both sides to work together for the betterment of the County.”
